surprise? let's welcome stephanie cutter. it's going reasonably well for you guys. it's been a good couple weeks, really since the conventions. you've got a bit of momentum but i guess you're not taking this too complacently. >> no, absolutely not, piers. you know, debates can be a pivotal moment in campaigns. i remember eight years ago when john kerry was getting ready to debate george bush, we were eight points down. coming out of that first debate we were tied with george bush. so there is an opportunity for mitt romney if he takes advantage of it next wednesday night, to turn the momentum around. he not only has to win this debate but has to change the dynamics in this race. we know he's going to show up prepared, disciplined and aggressive, even tim pawlenty said that he's as good as it gets when it comes to debating. but the question is whether or not he's going to be able to talk to the american people specifically about what his plans are for this country. that's been a huge deficit for him over the course of this campaign. no specifics, no details. so i think that is part of the b
, stephanie cutter. good to see you, stephanie. the crowd behind jim acosta is fired up. the focus group i was with last night is very clear. i mentioned this to jim. in case you didn't hear me, those personal attributes, likability, strength, mitt romney really surged. it's just two men in this case on that stage. what could the president have done to avoid the outcome that ended up happening? >> well, you know, in terms of mitt romney surging, just remember how much of a deficit he had to make up. i mean, he was in some cases double digits behind the president and all those attributes and the president is still leading on them. we expected an aggressive debater to show up last night on the debate stage with barack obama. we didn't expect an aggressively dishonest debater to show up. that's what we got in mitt romney. what could the president have done differently? of course, we'll recalibrate and recalculate based on the mitt romney that showed up last night. we've got two more debates left. now we know what we're dealing with. we know that mitt romney will, in a split second, walk away
in denver. last night, president obama's deputy campaign director, stephanie cutter, acknowledged that that tax cut would be nowhere near $5 trillion. she did go on to say that all of the loopholes that the governor would use to try to make that revenue neutral would not bring up the total amount, but it is important to note that she did say that tax and cuts would be hard. megyn: there is some troubling news from the unemployment department on jobs. applications rose to 360,000. that is up from last week. a second report shows planned layoff 4.9% in september. yesterday the commerce department said factory orders dropped 5.2% in august. still, just a short time ago, president obama said today's report shows that the economy is headed in the right direction. >> after losing about 800,000 jobs a month when i took office, we have more jobs and we found out this link at the unemployment rate has fallen to its lowest level since i took office. [cheers] [applause] megyn: joining me now is lou dobbs. he is the host of "lou dobbs tonight" on the fox business network. it is good news, say
or three to replace that one tonight. thank you very much. see you later. joining me in denver, stephanie cutter, deputy campaign manager for the president's re-election effort. where were you when you heard joe biden yesterday? >> i don't remember. because we don't see this as a tremendous deal. the romney campaign is good at jumping on whatever out of context comment of the day is, what they're not good at is understanding the challenges that middle class face. the fact that they don't believe the middle class bore the biggest brunt of the economic crisis is born out in your poll today. and a number of other polls that mitt romney doesn't understand the challenges that the middle class faces. what joe biden was saying, at which he often says on the campaign trail, is that because of the policies of the last administration and some of the same policies that mitt romney and paul ryan want to go back to, the middle class was severely punished and has take an while to bounce back. but the president has put the middle class at the center of everything that he has done over the past four year
's mouth his deputy campaign manager, stephanie cutter was on another network admitted it wouldn't be a $5 -- $5 trillion tax cut because of closing of loopholes but admitted that it would not be revenue neutral. stephanie cut irstipulated it won't be a $5 trillion tax cut. let's see what the president's says on the road to. martha: john roberts in st. petersburg's, florida. in the wake of wednesday night's debate, team obama out with attacked as calling governor romney a liar. nasty new turn with 32 days to go. we'll debate how things are going fair and balanced. bill: republicans quick to pounce on what vice president joe biden said about tax hikes if given a second term. listen. >> you know the phrase they always use, obama and biden want to raise taxes by a trillion dollars. guess what? yes, we do and in one regard. we want to let that trillion dollar tax cut expire so the middle class doesn't have to bear the burden of all that money going to the super wealthy. bill: so congressman paul ryan, the republican vp blasting biden's remarks saying such a tax hike would kill off 700,000 jobs
: when pressed about the 5 trillion dollars tax cut charge, obama advisor stephanie cutter eventually conceded the point. >> it's a 5 trillion dollar tax. but it's not going to be anywhere near 5 trillion dollars. >> okay, stipulated, won't be near 5 trillion dollars, but it's also not going to be the sum of 5 trillion dollars and the loopholes he's going to close, it will cost someone. >> they'll say they can do that, but one thing i say is not true is-- >> which brings us back to the truth and finding it in this campaign. and remember this clip that never made it into the 60 minutes broadcast. >> what the fact checksers had problems with the ads on both sides and say that they've been misleading and in some cases just not true. does that disturb you? i mean, some of them, some of them are your ads. >> do we see sometimes us going overboard in our campaign, mistakes that are made or the areas where there's no doubt that somebody could dispute how we are presenting things? i mean, you know, that happens in politics. i think-- >> aren't the american people entitled to the truth or a be
about joe biden's remarks about the middle class yesterday. let me play for your what stephanie cutter said. >> the middle class has been buried by the same policies that mitt romney and paul ryan want to go back to. you shouldn't be cutting taxes for those at the top and asked the middle class to talk about it. >> should mitt romney talk about that tonight or does he not go for the as we just heard major say, sort of responding to the video clip of the day? >> i agree with dan rather and major garrett were saying. the way and the manner in which you do this, you can disagree, but you don't want to be disagreeable. there's a real difference and a fine line there, but clearly, mitt romney is running because the prescription that president obama and joe biden have put forward over the last four years is failing this country and mitt romney will then articulate what he wants to do for the country moving forward. this one's focused totally on domestic policy. that will give the voters a great opportunity to see what the democratic line going back to bush and all that is simply not true. th

"andrea mitchell reports" live in denver on msnbc. >> i'm meteorologist bill karins with your big travel forecast. big changes in the midwest but until the cold air arrives a warm day from minneapolis to kansas city, all the way coun through texas. we do have a soupy airs mass, humidity in the air along the eastern seaboard. a chance of showers, but they will be isolated during the day today. the cool air arrives in chicago tomorrow. or get the yard ready for cool an energy weather?n to size? the answer? a lot less. the great american fix-up is going on now... ...with new projects every week and big savings every day. so you can do what needs to be done. today. more saving. more doing. that's the power of the home depot. right now, owens corning ecotouch attik insulation is only $1
was seen as being upbeat, obama campaign spokeswoman stephanie cutter tried to paint mitt romney this way. >> mitt romney, yes, he absolutely wins the preparation and he wins the style points. but that's not what's been dogging his campaign. you know what's worse, he got testy about it. he got testy about being on defense. i think that came across to the american people. >> keeping them honest, it's hard to find evidence for that conclusion in our poll of people who watched the debate. 67% to 25%, they thought mr. romney won the debate. when asked who was more likeable, debate watchers gave the two candidates essentially equal marks. that's one piece of spin that doesn't quite pass the sniff test. decide for yourself if this one does from the campaign's ben lebold who suggested mitt romney last night was acting. >> it was performance art. he locked himself into some bad positions that he took during the republican primary, tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas, refusing to ask the wealthiest for a dime to reduce the deficit and those give us big openings to talk about on the ca
morning. >> good morning. we heard stephanie cutter, who was spinning, talking with jessica yellin last night. she said this. i want to play a little chunk of that. >> my plan is not to put in place any tax cut that will add to the deficit. that's point one. >> i'm just going to read it to you. sorry, jen. let me read it to you. stephanie said this when she came out to the spin room. she said, yes, mitt romney, he absolutely wins the preparation. he wins the style points. that's what's not dogging his campaign. if you actually look at the polls you can see the polls when you ask people who won, 67% think it was mitt romney who won. you can't tell me that that was just a judgment on preparation and on style. some of that has to be winning on substance, right? >> well, look, i don't think the american people make a judgment on who they're going to vote for by an instant poll coming out of a debate. they're not looking for an attacker in chief, which is what mitt romney was last night. they're looking for a commander in chief and the president's calm, delivered performance and him laying o
last night's debate about where governor romney would take this country. here is stephanie cutter. >> the problems on this campaign is not the attack on obama, the lack in this campaign is his tax cuts, he denied having the tax wuts all together. martha: the next debate will be october 16th at hoffstra university. it will be a small town hall style. there will be questions on domestic and foreign policy. bill: there is no rest for president obama as you imagine. back to the campaign grind today, mr. obama holds a rally in denver. anded henry traveling live with the president in denverment what is the campaign saying this morning about last night? >> very chilly this morning in denver, chilly reception for the president last night from right to left. i spoke as to stewart stevens, and he said luke can't have bill clinton stand in for you in these debates. it's the one man going head-to-head with the challenger. bill mahr said maybe the t-t doe president does need his teleprompter. when he loses bill mahr he's in a little bit of trouble. i think the president started long with tryin
romney will win if he plays the cards right. >> reporter: stephanie cutter making those comments on piers morgan, if your candidate does better, it is considered a big victory. how much are people paying attention to it? what they really want to do is hear what they will do to make the country better. >>> all right, thank you so much. >>> president obama and mitt romney coming face-to-face as american voters weigh in, picking their first choice on the presidential debate, october 3rd, live on cnn.com. >>> and 38 days from the presidential election, but already millions of americans have had their say. in fact, nearly half of all voters are expected to take advantage of early voting laws, as john king reports in the battleground state of iowa. as a candidate may already be emerging. >> reporter: mind made up, ballots cast, 40 days early. this opening day line is in iowa city. >> here we go. >> reporter: this one in des moines. iowa's early voting, part of a growing and natural trend. some states allow the early voting, including the battlegrounds, cnn ranks as toss-ups. here in iowa, the e
as they're giving. hear is the president's deputy campaign manager stephanie cutter on mitt romney's plans to cut income tax rates. >> the only way he gives the wealthy a big tax cut by deducking deductions for mortgages and. that would raise taxes for $2,000. if they have a different calculation they haven't shared it yet. >> reporter: get the democrat's view at barack obama.com,/debate or republican view at debate debates.mitt romney.com. jenna: we'll have computers up and ready to go. what are the republicans predicting? >> reporter: like the democrats they're building up their opponent in order to lower the bar for mitt romney noting the president is accomplished public speaker though that may be something different than being a good debater. and they expect his debate answers to follow his campaign speeches. republican national committee chairman reince priebus wrote in an op-ed in the "denver post" this morning, quote, unable to defend his record, president obama will make excuses and he will spend the debate dishonestly attacking governor romney, exactly what he has been doing at ca
